English term or phrase: to put on
Please could you let me know when SETJA UPP and other alternative (rather than FARA Í) should be used.
I.e. how do I translate into Icelandic “to put on” when I am putting on the following (and other examples which do not follow the FARA Í pattern if you can think of them)?
Glasses? Shoes? Skates? Hats?
